Love’s Brexit solution

Brexit’s friendly badger

What if all these grumpy people in parliament indirectly and unknowingly bring this nation togethor in love and also set a pattern for other nations to do so too?

All their having a go at each other and making silly rules that evidently don’t work, leads this country into a right pickle. Squidgy piglets, the lot of them.

But is it such a pickle in the long run? What if this nation is forced into a situation where we will need to help each other as things get so bad.

Anyway, half of the country got what they did not want in the vote and if it works or not, the main problem IMO is the anxiety and fear that surrounds the whole blummin thing. It would have worked either way if it was not for the fear and anxiety.

This is the same thinking but suited better to the more academic sort:

Romans 8:28 “And we know in all things, God works for the good of those who love him, those who are called according to his purpose.”

So maybe the Brexiter’s will be part of the “all things”.

I said it before and I will say it again. We need the Lord Jesus on our side as in our own strength we are just naughty naughty no matter how hard we try.

He loves you unconditionaly no matter how naughty we have been so just pray and mean this:

“Lord Jesus I realise I am a human and I struggle with being naughty, you said in your love letter (the bible), that you would forgive me. Please forgive me and help me to be a better person and love my neighbour. Jesus I believe you are God and that you rose from the dead after the cross where you died for my sins”.

Let’s learn to love our neighbour in this time of pickle. We may see another way of life and so end up better than we were with the riches we had before Brexit i.e. we will be drinking chicken soup for our souls and not bloating over lobster.

You can turn fear to excitement by the way. They are emotions that are not very far from each other. You can switch it in your mind.

Check out this post too. It will help you with any worry about the news:

NEIBIT

This is important; we all love complaining about Brexit (including me 😋), but lets add discussion of solutions in our conversations and actually do it e.g. forgiving each other.

Also, when we have these conversations, the conversations should be civilized adult conversations where it not about “me being heard” all the time, but listening to your fellow man’s point of view too.

Please let us not be illiberal liberals by saying we tolerate all Gods and then get grumpy wumps at Jesus followers. That logic is faulty.

Satisfaction in thankfulness to God for His gifts, the best bitterness remedy

John Piper is a famous preacher and he once said “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him”.

I really do believe this is right.

Also did you know that the opposite of bitterness is thankfulness and being thankful gets rid of the bitterness.

SO…

Make yourself a coffee and sit down with your favourite bible version. Maybe read a Psalm for a bit of faith and just think of the good things in your life and say thankyou to God for them and why you like them.

This will be satisfying and enjoyable if done right:

– “Jesus, thankyou for your steadfast love in giving me this house after I was homeless before, I am so happy to have a roof and warmth. Even if I am alone this Christmas, you are with me always”.

– “Jesus, thankyou for coffee lattes that are delicous and they do not cost much”.

– “Thankyou for chocolate, it is a rather nice thing, I am so thankful that we are in an easy country.”

– “Jesus thankyou for my warm snuggly dressing gown and slippers, they help me to be cosy”.

– “Jesus thankyou that I have you as my closest friend who holds me by my right hand. I know I am homeless, but let’s layer up and have a coffee and a prayer in the tent”.

– Think of your own ones. Maybe for your family or for you health but remember to say why you like it so that it works and say thankyou.

Selah…. shalom 🍰

P.S don’t drink too much caffeine. Be sensible please.
